President Muhammadu Buhari has sworn-in Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the new Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN)

Justice Ariwoola was officially sworn by the president on Monday afternoon, following the resignation of Justice Tanko Muhammad from the Judicial position.

Justice Muhammad, it was gathered, was forced to resign over the weekend, although the information in the public space is that he’s quitting on health grounds.

Recall that last week, a letter written 14 justices of the supreme court accusing him of abandoning his responsibility as the leader of the court leaked.

The judges further accused the CJN of going on foreign trips with his family while denying them the right to go on international trainings.

It was gathered that there was a memo from the judges to the presidency, highlighting all of the CJN’s financial dealings, and threatening that they would stop sitting from September if he is not removed.

Ariwoola, the new CJN was the next-highest ranking justice of the supreme court after Muhammad.

He is billed to leave the Judicial service in 2028.

William Ruto Declared Winner Of The Presidential Election In Kenya

Published

on

Kenya’s William Ruto and presidential candidate for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has been declared winner of the presidential election in Kenya.

The Deputy President William Ruto was declared winner by  the electoral commission chairman amid dramatic scenes.

He narrowly beat his rival, Raila Odinga, taking 50.4% of the vote.

The announcement was delayed amid scuffles and allegations of vote-rigging by Mr Odinga’s campaign.

Four of the seven members of the electoral commission refused to endorse the announcement, saying the results were “opaque”.

“We cannot take ownership of the result that is going to be announced because of the opaque nature of this last phase of the general election,” said Juliana Cherera, the vice-chairperson of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

“We are going to give a comprehensive statement… and again we urge Kenyans to keep calm. There is an open door that people can go to court and the rule of law will prevail,” she said.

Mr Odinga’s party agent earlier alleged that there were “irregularities” and “mismanagement” in the election.

This was the first time Mr Ruto, 55, had run for president. He has served as deputy president for 10 years, but fell out with President Uhuru Kenyatta, who backed Mr Odinga to succeed him.
